Just moved to Brighton and I need to access a loading dock. I borrowed my father's enclosed trailer to move and he will be bringing my Taco up on his 5th wheel so I need a place so that we can load the enclosed trailer onto the 5th wheel so he can take it home in one trip. Thanks guys.

Brighton eh? Keep an eye out for me, honk/wave or something. I live in Brighton as well (black ext. cab on reg cab frame, primer bed, white tailgate, all pro front bumper, yellow headlights)

Theres a loading dock at the high school, not sure how long you'll need it as it blocks part of the street with a long trailer.

Other than that, theres an old train dock on Main St. However, it is private property and not exactly "legal".

I'll try to think of where else there's a loading dock and i'll let you know.

PM me and we can get in touch, i've been in brighton for 10 years now, pretty familiar with the area.

I know i've seen another one around, i just cant quite pin point it.

You could back the 5th wheel into a ditch and then load the trailer.

ha ha. I was serious though. find a shallow bar ditch or something. I've loaded plenty of stranded motorcycles (my brother never checked weather reports) using a ditch or hillside. Should work same with a trailer.

Thanks guys. I might try and find the high school dock. My Dad is bringing up some ramps but with a loading dock it would take out some of the approach angle. The fold down ramps are too steep and the enclosed trailer doesn't have much clearance. I did this once before when I had to load a car on his 5th wheel. With the ramps up it makes a flat surface the full length of the trailer.

I will keep an eye out. I know I would recognize your truck I love the build. Is the bed still white? Not sure if mine will be out much. Just depends on the local cops I guess.

Loading dock for the high school is between 8th and 9th ave. on egbert.

Streets go up as they go east, (ie: main is west end of town, 45th is east)

Egbert is about 2 blocks south of Bridge St.

We got it. Thanks though. The dock at the school was too narrow. I had an adjustable drop hitch so we were able to lower the hitch and with a few blocks back it on. The enclosed trailer ended up being a lot wider than we thought. The tires were just over the sides on the 26ft 5th wheel trailer.
